This is an excellent recording of I Lombardi. Especially Pavarotti seems at his best with the lyrical phrasing of Bergonzi and the same fullness of tone. June Anderson is brilliant in this, a wonderful understanding of the dynamics in the challenging arias. Altogether a great production.

James Levine offers a new reading of I Lombardi 2 Nov 2001
By Dr. Armando R. Trigueiros - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I must admit and confess that this is a good recording of this not to much recorded opera, I Lombardi by Verdi. The recorded sound is of the best quality, the best modern digital sound for this opera. James Levine offers us a reading with drive, straightness and drama, which is his personal new achievement for this opera. But, altough I enjoyd the performance, such fast speed given to the performance does not permit a certain lyricism and elegance in Verdi's melodies,(as in the old and very good Lamberto Gardelli version in the Philips label), in such a way that we fell a certain superficiality in the whole work. The soloists are first rate: the aged Pavarotti is good, but not to expressive; June Anderson has beautifull color of voice, but could give much more of herself if the tempos were a little bit slower. However Samuel Ramey is the singer that seems not to be afected by the tempos Levine adopts, and sings with drama and deepness. Anyway, this is surely the best modern digital version of I Lombardi by Giuseppe Verdi.

A terrific cast led by Levine in a memorable recording. 3 Jan 2002
By matteo leoncini - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This opera would not rank in the highest echelon of Verdi operas, but this cast, orchestra and conductor make the most of what they have been given. Ramey is magnificent, as usual. Pavarotti sounds slightly frayed around the edges, but more than justifies his somewhat misleading star-photo billing on the recording's cover. James Levine conducts with vigour, and the Met Orchestra responds in kind. At times, Levine does drive almost too hard -- this is particulary during a few of Ms. Anderson's moments, when you sense that her bel canto technique is not allowed to shine as much as it might. Nonetheless, I found her singing to be quite beautiful. A very different "Non fu sogno" than one provided by a Caballe, perhaps, but equally arresting. (More Anderson recordings, please!)

One of Verdi's lesser achievements 15 Jun 2011
By William J. Coburn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In 1981 my friend Larry asked me to take him to an opera. I chose a production of I Lombardi at the New York City Opera. When it was over, he said to me as people were booing the cast and the production team and tearing up their Playbills and raining down the impromptu confetti on the audience below, "Never take me to see another opera again." I bought this recording of I Lombardi many years later at BMG Music Service for very little money; BMG was dumping it. The performance is excellent, but the opera is still one of Verdi's weaker works dating from what he called "his years in the galleys;" in other words, he felt as if he was a slave sitting among other slaves below the deck and rowing a Roman tireme. The majority of his early operas are not so good because Verdi wrote two or three per year. He raced from one place to another to get contracts to have new operas performed, which in many cases he had not even written yet. There were no trains then; he had to make arduous journeys by horse-drawn carriage. All of that exhausting trekking from one place to another broke his health.
There are five excellent operas from before he wrote his break-through work, Rigoletto; I would be inclined to purchase them before investing in many of the other early works. The two best are Macbeth and Stiffello. Macbeth is so good because Verdi extensively revised it eighteen years later while he was writing Don Carlos; he replaced weaker music with better material. Stiffelio, which he wrote before Rigoletto, is even better than Macbeth, but the score was lost for more than a hundred years. It was shut down by Catholic censors in 19th century Italy because the main character is a Protestant minister, he has a wife who is unfaithful, and at the end of the opera he does a very Protestant thing: he picks a passage at random from his bible as his penitent wife is kneeling before him in the sanctuary. It is the story of the woman caught in adultery, and at the end of the opera, the minister sings, "Go woman and sin no more." I was raised in the Catholic Church, and while it is more open-minded now, it was terrified by anything Protestant back then, especially in a mostly Catholic country like Italy.
The other three early works which have more than enough good music are Nabucco, Ernani (a favorite of George Bernard Shaw) and Luisa Miller. You can't go wrong with these five operas. All of the operas Verdi composed after Rigoletto are great achievements except Aroldo; it is a weak remake of Stiffelio. Definitely include Verdi's Requiem; it is as impassioned as any great opera.

Good Levine. Great some singers. 13 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Levine finds the best inspiration in the coral moments (see the great "concertato finale"). Good also the quality of the recording. Very well the duo Pavarotti (great usual class)Anderson. Excellent Ramey, actually still the best bass.

Zwei wunderschöne Stunden 7 April 2008
By M. Zimmermann-lauper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Die Oper "I Lombardi" von G. Verdi beeindruckt mich mit dieser Aufnahme auf sehr positive Art. Als jahrelanger Fan von Samuel Ramey komme ich auf meine Rechnung, indem er den Pagano mit wundervoller, intensiver Stimme darstellt. June Anderson, als Semiramis in bester Erinnerung, singt schnörkellos und trotzdem einfühlsam die Giselda. Ebenso berühren Luciano Pavarotti und Richard Leech in ihren Rollen. James Levine fand einmal mehhr die richtigen Tempi und hielt die Musiker zu optimaler Lautstärke an.
Ich würde die Aufnahme gerne weiterempfehlen.
